Joan found a cancerous lump between her breast and armpit last year.

Gemma told fans on Instagram: “Good morning everyone, I just want to be real with you.

“I’ve just got out of bed, sun shining, I’ve got a busy day.

“My mum’s really ill at the minute, she’s in intensive care.


“It’s been a hell of a time, I’m really happy…well not that happy as my mum’s in intensive care but she’s on the mend, thank god.”

Gemma also shared a sweet throwback photo with her mum and wrote: “So last week I had the shock of my life when my mum stopped breaking and I called an ambulance and was told to prepare for the worst and would I like to resuscitate her.”

The Diva Forever star continued: “It’s been extremely tough but she is stable now and hopefully she will be much better soon.

“No day is promised for make everyday count.”

Last year Gemma revealed her mum had found a lump between her breast and her armpit.

Recalling the scary moment, Gemma told The Sun: She said: “It was over the phone. I was in the back of a taxi in London and I was like, ‘Are you all right, mum? Where are you?’ — as we say every day, ten times a day.

“She said, ‘Ah I didn’t want to tell you, but I’ve had a lump in my breast. I was like, ‘What?’, and she said, ‘But it’s fine I’ve got the all-clear’. I was like, ‘Oh, my God. Why didn’t you tell me?’”

Gemma continued: “It’s something that I’ve never spoken about. I was filming Diva Forever at the time so she never said a thing about the diagnosis, which must have been scary for her.

“She found the lump on the side of her right breast but she only told me when it was all over.

“Thank God she got it checked and thank God they caught it in the nick of time.

“She knew that I would have fallen apart in the worst-case scenario so she kept it to herself because she didn’t want to upset me — but she was very scared.”

Gemma, who also lost a female family member to the disease, said she has spoken to her doctor about a BRCA gene test — which screens DNA to assess the risk — in the hope of getting peace of mind.
